Out of This World

I hope you had a great day!  We were back to the grind today.  My youngest and I ran around and did some errands.  He's not a big fan of shopping so let's just say I faced some resistance!

I tackled the CAS-ual Fridays challenge yesterday.  The challenge was pretty simple.  A clean and simple (CAS) card using punches or dies.  I am in need of Father's Day cards still so I decided I would use the challenge to get another card made!

I used the Loved Ones stamp set from Stampin' Up! and some silver embossing powder to create the DAD.  I cut it out afterwards so it would fit better on the punched out shape.

The other stamp set used (rocket and sentiment) is non-SU.

I think this card might be perfect for my boys to give their dad!  It's not an airplane but it does fly!!!

Cardstock: Basic Black. Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Loved Ones, Boys Basics - Out of this World (non-SU)
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Glitter, Black Pearl, Decorative Label Punch, Rocket Ship die, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
